templates never worked with it). You start them for several reasons:
- to insert text
- to do something which you have programmed
Clips are like Macros in Officeprodcts. You use them to ease your working.
They are executed when you tell them to.
- by doubleclicking on the clipwindow
- if you're desired clip is highlighted and you press ctrl-space
- when you press Escape and type the first letters and then press enter
- if you have made a button on the clipbar and click this
- when called from another clip
They don't automagically start sometime. :o)

Hi Judy, ... I think it is only obvious to those who have done it before or read Use the Editor Clipbook or Clip Basics that says to double click on a ClipMessage 2 of 4 , Nov 3, 2001View SourceHi Judy,

read "Use the Editor Clipbook" or "Clip Basics" that says to
double click on a Clip and perhaps some other sections of Help.
However, it is just a single sentence and can be overlooked if
one is not reading closely. (If you look in View | Options |
Clipbook you can check the feature "Single click to Execute" in
order to only have to single click to run/execute a Clip.)
Like Nicole mentioned you can execute a Clip that is focused in
the Clipbook by pressing Alt+Spacebar; you can also press Enter
when a Clip is highlighted. I suppose you could say Clips perform
two main functions and a third being a mixture of the first two.
A Clip can simply paste text into a focused document, run scripts
to achieve many tasks like little mini programs, or do both at
the same time.

Jody, ... Just a minor correction to eliminate confusion, and I know that your brain had a run time error and failed to properly engage fingers this timeMessage 3 of 4 , Nov 3, 2001View SourceJody,

had a run time error and failed to properly engage fingers this time
because you have typed it correctly at least 1000 times before. :-)))
Nicole correctly said "- if your desired clip is highlighted and you press
ctrl-space". (meaning Ctrl+Spacebar.)
As we all know, Alt+Spacebar pulls down the TitleBar Menu, the one that we
all forget even exists. :-)
